CURLOPT_PREQUOTE - commands to run before an FTP transfer

CURLOPT_PREQUOTE(3) curl_easy_setopt options CURLOPT_PREQUOTE(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_PREQUOTE - commands to run before an FTP transfer

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
 
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PREQUOTE,
struct curl_slist *cmds);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a pointer to a linked list of FTP commands to pass to the server after the transfer type is set. The linked list should be a fully valid list of struct curl_slist structs properly filled in as described for CURLOPT_QUOTE(3). Disable this operation again by setting a NULL to this option.
 
While CURLOPT_QUOTE(3) and CURLOPT_POSTQUOTE(3) work for SFTP, this option does not.

DEFAULT

NULL

PROTOCOLS

FTP

EXAMPLE

struct curl_slist *h = NULL;
h = curl_slist_append(h, "SYST");
curl = curl_easy_init(); if(curl) { curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/foo.bin");
/* pass in the FTP commands to run */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PREQUOTE, headerlist);
ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
curl_easy_cleanup(curl); }

AVAILABILITY

Along with the protocol support

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
